Counting Down to Day 45 (Day 84 out of 129) of the Middle Path Makeover – Meditation on the Move

When you’re on the go as much as I am, I find it’s often really grounding to be able to bring my meditation practices with me. My zafu and zabuton (meditation cushions) don’t pack up into my carry-on very well. Here are several sites I’ve found to be easily accessible, especially when traveling:

YogaDownload – I’ve bought 45-minute and 60-minute classes in several styles of Yoga for about $5 or $6 bucks. I download them onto my thumbdrive and take them with me to play on my laptop. The instructors are solid and YogaDownload even offers free 20-minute downloads if you want to try a style first.

Vipassana.org – This is a fantastic organization and their website offers information and even online training in the Theraveda Buddhist tradition. I love getting their e-newsletters and find their information to be valuable and comprehensible, where many other websites on the subject tend to fall a bit short. They don’t spam.

The Mindfulness Bell – This is a FABULOUS free site that allows you to set online timers (mindfulness bells) on your computer in various intervals. No download is needed! I often use this site on my work computer to remind me to wake up and be present and in the moment.

Wzen.org – This is my very favorite internet radio station on the topic of Zen, broadcasting from the Mountains and Rivers Order in upstate New York. I haven’t tried it on my cell phone yet but I suspect it will also stream from a smartphone.

Keep on keepin’ on and keep on movin’,

P.S. I am recommending these websites to you because for me, they’re tried and true. No one is paying me to recommend these sites. Please enjoy and let me know what you think!
